Stayed here on business. Hotel is clean and relatively modern. Outside has a pool area that is nice during winter. Summer it gets too humid and hot to sit outside. The rooms are clean with aircon. Television in my room only had French channels. The wifi is terribly slow and constantly asks for the password to be re-entered on your... More

I had an amazing experience at this hotel. The van was there at the airport to pick us up. We were late and they waited patiently. The staff was humble, patient and kind and the atmosphere was great. I enjoyed the poolside music an dancing. The pool is beautiful especially at night when it lights up. The morning breakfast was... More

Upon late arrival due to flight delays, the van driver for the Royal Richester patiently waited for our descend. Only a 15 minute drive from the Kotoka Airport, the hotel is located in somewhat of a secluded part of the developed district of E. Lagon. As we entered the facility, all lit up and decorated, it was as if I... More

First impressions when arriving late at night after a long flight were lovely lit poolside, welcoming check in & an inviting bar to relax in once the cases have been dumped in the room. That's about as good as it got because behind the nice decor of the reception & bar you'll find the rooms are pretty basic but charged... More

Porters, cleaning staff, breakfast staff and door/security staff are all very pleasant and professional and the kitchenette is nice, but the $200+ price tag for a single room is absolutely not worth it. Close enough to airport that planes can disturb sleep/make it hard to fall (back) asleep. Gasoline/kerosene-type smell on and off, may be from neighborhood. Phone in room... More

The staff was friendly and accommodating. The room I was in was well equipped AC worked & the ceiling fans were nice, the room had a refrigerator, cooktop & cutlery, (wish the mattress was a little softer but that's a personal thing). The laundry service was great, they got my white collars preteen. Richard (the owner) was friendly and proved... More

I stayed here on two separate occasions on business in the span of two weeks. The first time I was assigned a regular room, which was fully appointed with a kitchen, coffee/tea pot, and refrigerator. It was quite clean. The breakfast buffet was very nice, with about anything you might want and expect for breakfast. I had lunch and dinner... More

We are currently holding a conference for 50 people at this hotel. They are incredibly accommodating and have met our planned and more immediate requests. The room is light and airy, food and tea breaks delivered on time. Staff are polite and responsive. Issues with the air-conditioning and water were sorted quickly. Only complaint is that the generator is not... More
